14-11-2011 Students are awarded a prize for their master project
Two students from the Engineering College of Aarhus have won a prestigious prize for the development of a concept, which makes mixing loops far more solid.
"It is surely a great acknowledgement and it means that the knowledge we bring with us from our engineering degree can give us a direct value creation," says Jesper Pedersen.
He has together with Rune Frederiksen qualified for Grundfos’ project prize with a master project at the bachelor of engineering in mechanical engineering at the Engineering College of Aarhus.
The two students have received the prize of 25000 Danish Kroner for a new product concept of mixing loops.
The mixing loops take care of adjusting the relation between supply pipe water and return flow water when one wants to regulate the temperature.
An innovative concept
In relation to the awarding of the prize to the students Grundfos’ panel of judges have emphasized the fact that their project is innovative.
"The two engineering students have drawn inspiration from known solutions in their master project and developed a whole new product concept, which lives up to Grundfos’ high demands concerning for example dependability, " says Jørgen Vest Sørensen, product manager at Grundfos.
The students are praised for making use of the great network of specialists optimally and for communicating the results of the project in a fruitful way.
"They have accomplished the task independently and goal oriented. They have demonstrated their ability to make use of their skills from their study to solve a concrete problem. The project results are innovative and formulated in a rapport, which is very much useful for Grundfos," says Jørgen Vest Sørensen.
The students have signed a non-disclosure agreement together with Grundfos and details in the project cannot be revealed.
